In this episode of the Life and Football Podcast our special guest was Tony Caljean. Tony Caljean is currently a Quality Control Coach for the University of Akron. This was a great interview and Coach Caljean is destined for greatness.
Caljean started his first season at F&M in 2013 coaching the Diplomats’ linebackers. A native of Basking Ridge, New Jersey, Caljean played outside linebacker at Lafayette College and was a part of the 2006 Patriot League Championship squad and a member of the 2007 team that led all of Division I-FCS in total defense. He graduated in 2010 from Lafayette with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Government and Law.
Caljean went to F&M after serving as a graduate assistant for Bethel University in McKenzie, Tenn. While there he coached the running backs for the ninth-ranked Wildcats, who won the Mid-South Conference. Caljean helped coordinate the seventh-best rushing offense in all of NAIA and mentored All-Conference running back, Cordarius Mann (who finished second all-time in rushing yards in school history) and Conference Freshman Offensive Player of the Year, Raquis Hale. Caljean also served as the Strength and Conditioning Coordinator.
Prior to Bethel, he spent two years at Bernards High School in Bernardsville, New Jersey as Defensive and Special Teams Coordinator, as well as Strength and Conditioning Coach. While coaching at Bernards, the program won the 2011 Mid-State 39 Conference Championship, and the defense was ranked the top defense in the conference.
